Both my dad and my FI’s dad are invited to the bachelor party – which is destination in miami.  I think it is pretty normal for them to be invited.

If FFIL asked if he was invited, it’s a bit rude to tell him "no you can’t come", isn’t it? 

I would ask FI’s brother and best man for their opinions on the matter.  If FI and FFIL aren’t really buddies, then it might be better for it to be just ‘the boys’.  If the final decision is to exclude him, make sure you are not the one that has to deliver the message to him!

I think dads are often invited to the bachelor party nowadays, especially if there’s no debauchery involved (which is sounds like there’s not!).  Think about it…the goal is for your FI to hang out with guys who are closest to him to celebrate him and his impending marriage. 

If he has a good relationship with his dad, then he should definitely be invited.  If he doesn’t have a close relationship with his dad. and would have more fun with just the guys, then leave it up to his brother to decide.  After all, it’s his dad, too!

I would think that FI’s brother would know whether it will be big fun or a total drag to have their dad along, so I would leave it up to him.  My FI is just having a golf weekend, but dads are not invited – although I know there won’t be anything risque going on, as the guys who would instigate that kind of thing are also not invited!  Its a foursome bachelor party, which actually makes sense for a golf marathon weekend.
